• A Surprisingly Powerful Cold Front Wreaks Havoc On Harvest Moon Regatta




    The Annual slightly offshore 145 nm race from Galveston to Corpus Christi along the Texas Shore line
    was rudely interrupted Friday night and early Saturday morning as a more powerful that projected
    cold front descended of the water with 131 boats registered. 2 boats require USCG Rescue during the race
    and another vessel required a seasick crewmember to be airlifted to a helicopter. 15 boats withdrew before the
    start and another 18 DNF. Winds recorded in the mid 40 knot range and seas 4-12 feet were reported.
